This book contains William Shakespeare's play "The Tragedy of Macbeth". One of his most sinister and powerful plays, "Macbeth" chronicles the personal and political problems of attempting to gain power through nefarious means. Set in Scotland, it is the tale of a general who is told by a coven of witches that he is to become King. Motivated by his ambitious wife and his desire for power, he murders the king and usurps the throne. In order to maintain his power, he is forced to do terrible things, and becomes tormented by guilt and paranoia. A fantastic play by a master of the form, "Macbeth" is highly recommended for fans of Shakespeare's work, and deserves a place on every bookshelf. William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616), was an English playwright, actor, and poet - considered to be the greatest writer in the English language, and the world's most celebrated dramatist. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of William Shakespeare.
